Send us your shelf porn!


Comics are awesome. They’re a great artistic medium. They’re fun to read. They’re fun to collect. They’re fun to blog about. We all know that.

Email me (cmautner at comcast dot net) with pics of your collection and perhaps a few words about how you came about your own unique storage solution and once a week we’ll post the responses we get here, for all to enjoy. Be the envy of all! Show us how inventive you are! Make us curse you for owning that one book we’ve been desperate to locate for umpteen years now!
